Pre-Code.Com Site News for March 2015
Wow! That was a lot of reviews in February, right? I think everyone got burned out on those Pitts & Todd shorts (including me), but things could have been worse. Much worse. There are probably Durante shorts out there. (shudder)
After accidentally updating three times a week in January and seven days a week in February, I have no doubt that the slide back to the regular schedule of two updates a week may throw people off. However, the occasional Wednesday update will still slip in, there are just no promises being made about them.
Besides that, at the end of the month, you should see daily (or more!) updates from the TCM Film Fest (crosses fingers) as well as daily updates for the Pre-Code blogathon shortly thereafter.
So here’s to March! May I survive unto April!
